Watch Dogs was an action adventure video game released on May 27 in 2014. It was developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft.


 The single-player game is played in the third person, you can control trains, traffic lights, and security systems, and access pedestrians’ private information. 


Aiden Pearce is an advanced hacker and criminal who is going on missions to capture his niece’s murder. Aiden hacks a system called ¨ctOS Chicago’s Central Operating System¨ which he believes can help him find the people who had something to do with the murder of his niece. 


His niece Lena Pearce was a six-year-old girl who lost her life in a car crash because of a failed hacking attempt. Her brother Jackson Pearce was in the car during the accident and he has developed PTSD making it hard for him to open up and speak to anybody.


There are 40 missions, and 5 acts that you have to complete in order to finish the game. In act 1 there is a mission called “Big Brother” in this act Aiden will have to attend his nephew’s birthday party and in the midst of it. His sister Nicky gets a prank call where they ask if her locks are strong enough; Aiden takes it upon himself to find the prank caller.


This game could be played on Playstation 3&4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows, and Wii. At the moment the game isn’t around in stores but it is online for $20. There are sequels called “Watch Dogs 2” and “Watch Dogs Legion” that are similar to the original watch dogs minus the storyline.


It’s good fun.
